Default Flash Presentation...

I'm working on converting some Powerpoint Presentations into Flash movies.

I'm still using MX2004...

Here's my question:

I got the movie all finished and exported and I included some navigation buttons to Play, Pause, Stop, Advance to Next, and Go Back to Previous.

However, the movie will only advance to the next slide if the user clicks on the Next button or on the Play button.

I put a stop(); code at the end of each "slide", otherwise the movie goes too fast. (Since all the "slides" are only separated by a couple extra frames)

Is it possible to make it so the movie just plays through on it's own without having to add in a ton of frames between each slide? But it also needs to be possible for the user to take control of the movie if they want it to go faster.
Is there some sort of action script that will stop the movie for a given amount of time and then start it again?
Thanks, folks!

Hmm...that's pretty cool I'll have to try it out. I figured there must be something like this but I wasn't sure.

Yea, that is what I ended up doing and it worked out just fine.

Flash presentation means converting PowerPoint to Flash?

Yeh, you may need to view some Flash presentation samples at:

Flash banner, Flash Photo Album or Flash Tour Guide from PowerPoint!
It could be a great idea to do so.
